Welcome to Team.CHC!

It’s Melbourne Design Week (May 23-June 02)

Melbourne Design Week 2024 celebrates design in an annual 11-day program of talks, tours, exhibitions, launches, installations, and workshops across Australia’s design capital.

Peek under the hood with the project team, including Jamie Kerr of @kapitolgroup and architectural lead Lawden Holmes of @clarkehopkinsclarke, and see how they saved approximately 19 million kilos of embodied carbon while transforming Moorabbin’s mid-century Phillip Morris factory site into a commercial and cultural precinct literally built around community connection.

Then grab a free drink from our friends @stompingground_moorabbin and join us for a candid conversation with @morris_moor developer Marcus Jankie of @upproperty, architect Gaston Nogues of @clarkehopkinsclarke, and one of our industry’s most compelling advocates for adaptive reuse, Robbie Neville of @Revival_Sustainable_Practice. We’ll unpack the challenges, ways to become better custodians of precious places and materials, and how adaptive reuse is driving the most exciting new placemaking worldwide.

Bookings are essential. Book here as tickets sales will end soon.

Presented as part of Melbourne Design Week, our panel discussion at @melbconnect is a timely conversation about challenges, lessons learned and the road ahead, culminating in what we hope will be a lively audience Q&A full of great questions.

The panel includes Dr Mandy Nicholson, Wurundjeri artist, Traditional Custodian of Naarm and surrounds, and Senior Lecturer in First Peoples’ Perspectives in Design at unimelb; Anne-Marie Pisani, Landscape Architect & First Peoples’ Partnerships and Design Lead at @aspectstudios; James Gilliland, Yorta Yorta Senior Architect at @clarkehopkinsclarke; Ripeka Walker, Architect and Doctoral Researcher and Sessional Educator at unimelb; and moderator Georgia Birks, a proud descendant of the Biripi, Dunghutti and Kamilaroi people and Associate Editor at Architecture Media.

Tickets have been fully allocated.

Each year, as part of our charitable partnership with One Heart Foundation, we send two CHC team members to take part in a life-changing experience, Run For Change. This year our participants are Mike (Senior Architect, Education) & Sam (Architect, Mixed Use).

The experience takes place in Kenya over ten days and includes an action packed itinerary filled with visits to the One Heart villages, schools and farms, volunteering, training, personal development and finishes with a marathon run.

The journey pushes and supports participants beyond their perceived boundaries to overcome a range of physical, mental, and emotional challenges. Not only will they be expanding and developing as individuals, but their efforts will be helping to break the poverty cycle for many children in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.
